Peppermint Candy Cane Bundt Cake/#BundtBakers

This month for the Bundt Bakers group the theme is "Naughty or Nice". Isn't that cute? I was tempted to do a naughty cake just for fun, but I baked a "nice" cake because I already had everything! Yes, sometimes I am that boring and practical! This Peppermint Candy Cane Bundt Cake is fun and tasty and cute, so I think it hits all the marks for something you would enjoy!

Add the flour mix to the batter, a little at a  time, alternating with the buttermilk, beating on low speed until just combined.

Grease and flour the mini bundt pan. Pour a small bit of plain batter into the bundt pans, top with some red batter, and then more plain batter. Use a toothpick to swirl the batter together.

After the bar has melted, add cream a little at a time until it is thick, but still able to drizzle. Add the peppermint flavoring.
